Greetings

Last night was filled once again with joy, excitement and energy!! The total number was at 66 from pre-k through 8th grade! As our Wednesday nights continue to grow, we are also looking for more volunteers to come help out on Wednesday nights. Here are a few of the needs we do have:
2-4 hosts a night - welcoming families as they come in and helping out with the registration process.
2-4 pre-opening volunteers - organizing an activity/game as the kids begin showing up around 6:30 (this would be from 6:25 - 6:45)
3-5 small group leaders - Our goal is to have 2 adults with each small group. Investing in the same small group each week, forming a connection for each child.
2-4  pre k - kindergarten helpers - Responsibilities would include helping kids during small group time, large group assistance with students needing extra attention and bathroom runs.
If you are interested in volunteering during our king's kids - even if for a set period of time - please let me know via email, phone or signing up Sunday mornings!

Recap - 
Last night the children went through two main points. First, there was an overview of the truth that "All have fallen short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23). As a result of our sin, there is a punishment - death. However, in the midst of our sin, we see that we have a merciful God! Which is great news for us! Last night, we got to the heart of where we are going with this Curriculum - redemption through Christ. God requires a "covering" for our sin. And just as He provided Adam and Eve with a covering, God has also provided a way for us as sinners to come to Him. We see the kindness our God shows to us. Even when we do not deserve His love and kindness, God extends His mercy! So as we see God's desire of love, we are encouraged to turn from deciding what is right for ourselves, and trust that God (who is kind, merciful, and loving) knows what is best and right for our lives. 

As we continue to move through the story of redemption, please continue to pray for our kids on Wednesday night. Pray that they would continue to grow in relationship with one another, and in relationship with God! Pray for the volunteers that we do have, asking for God's strength, patience, love and wisdom would work in their life! Pray for our continued need for volunteers on Wednesday nights. Ask for the support we need to continue to influence, teach, equip and love our kids each week!! 

If you have any questions or would like to know more about volunteering or what is going on during King's Kids, please feel free to get in contact with me via email or phone!
